Pocket Sized Thoughts – Habakkuk – Part 2

I will work a work in your days which you will not believe …” Habakkuk 1:5

When Habakkuk asked questions, he was not ashamed, embarrassed or even too proud to bring these enquiries to God. We can do the same. God answers but not always in the way we expect. Habakkuk’s name means ‘Love’s embrace.’ In reply to all of life’s enquiries, God doesn’t simply give us information. He gathers us up into His everlasting arms of love. This is in itself better than factual answers. To know that we are loved; to know that He is involved and to know that He cares is the best kind of answer. This kind of ‘reply’ comforts and strengthens our hearts more than any cold, factual answer could ever do. It assures us that there is a Being involved, who is more powerful and wiser than we are. If everything that is happening today was just left to chance, or man’s abilities to try and solve, there would be no hope. God may not give us direct answers but when we know that He knows, it gives us a glimpse into His eternal purposes and love and cause us to gratefully worship Him. His work is more amazing than we could ever imagine and He is doing far more than we realise.

PRAYER :- Lord, thank you that when you hear us, You do not just give us answers, but you give us yourself.
